Minnedosa Area Backs Portable Ultrasound Equipment Purchase
The community of Minnedosa and surrounding area stepped up to the plate in a big way to help fund the purchase of a portable ultrasound machine for the Minnedosa Health Centre. The Minnedosa and District Health Foundation and Minnedosa Rotary Club led the way in organizing fundraising efforts to raise $62,500 for a Sonosite Ultrasound System. The new piece of diagnostic equipment is now being used within the Emergency Room and patient rooms within Minnedosa Hospital.
